FINALLY, the love of my life, entered his 30's!!! What a wonderful celebration!!!! (for me at least ;)
Jake's family was in town and we had him open gifts before the Red Sox Game..
Jake holding up a gift from his aunt - the lyrics to "My Next 30 Years" by Tim McGraw...with his iconic senior picture in the corner...love the pose Jake!!!
Jake wanted nothing more then his brother to play a show down in Virginia for his birthday - trying to get everyone in the band down to VA was just not going to happen...so his family gave us a ton of cash (which is attached to this haunted tree) for us to come up and go to "Freak Fest!" ...which Andrew's band was hosting!! You guys are awesome :)
While everyone was in town, Deven and Zack stopped by Adam's in Quantico on the way to MA - Welcome to the family Zack!!! A little Cards Against Humanity with the family to make you feel welcome...or uncomfortable :)
Jake's "real" birthday was during the week - the kids helped me make and decorate his cake...I guess I should not have walked away when they put the candles on...now my husband is only three!
I didn't have the heart to change it "Happy 3rd Birthday Dad!"
We threw Jake a surprise party the Saturday after his birthday! Thanks to Ryan for taking Jake out to play golf all day so we could set up and prepare food! Thank you to everyone who helped make this happen...I could not have done it all by myself! We have the best friends and family!!
Starting the party with shots...well, they were...I was drinking coffee!
Melanie and I made these great mustache chocolate lollipops ...such a great addition to the "man" party! haha!
It wouldn't be a party without beer pong!
Tough Mudder VA - 2013
Jake, Andrew, Adam, Nate and Josh conquered the Tough Mudder...a 10 mile obstacle course!!
The boys getting ready to take on the course...Go Sox!!!
It was about 40 degrees at race time, good thing they had the beards and hats to keep them warm.
Jake hydrating while carrying the team log - if the log made it back to the finish line, Tough Mudder would donate money to the Wounded Warriors...they made sure it got there!!
Lounges in between the hills just for fun!
The course went through parts of VA and WVA...I love that they had these signs.
They all survived and got all cleaned up - tired and sore, they are back home to relax!
Part of our company picnic was at Cox Farm this year! We had a blast with Jake's parents and the kids!
Memere and Leah going down the slide...Leah loved it!
Jasmine and Matthew going down the slide...Matthew did not like it!
Three generations of Robitaille's!!
